What's especially important is to do a college degree and your flight training separately. I went to two years of community college and two years of university and came out debt free with my degree. Then, I went through flight school in a year and had my Flight Instructor certificate. I followed that by working as an instructor before going to the airline. When people go to these private aviation universities, they end up with six-figure debt. I had none, being as I worked while in college and worked up the money before going into flight school. Airlines like to see a degree, but frankly, they don't care that it's an aviation degree, unless you're going into management. For pilots, a degree is a degree, no need to spend tons of money getting one.

The writer was just being honest! There honestly have been more exciting forecasts! But, seriously, AutoCorrect has made too many writers lazy. When your word program just AutoCorrects stuff for you, and you don't pay attention, stupid copy is the result!

It's funny how Boeing, an American company has a training program for pilots from every first world country but its own. It won't work on the states because of the knee jerk 1500 hour rule. Not saying it's a bad rule but the reasoning behind it is flawed. And the pay still hasn't come up to what it should be.
